Care of Creeping Phlox
My creeping phlox looks fine on top but it’s dry underneath. I have lots of leaves but very few flowers.
Creeping phlox performs best in full sun and well-drained soils. Make sure your plant is growing in the best possible conditions. Even properly planted phlox will get leggy and less attractive after several years. Dig and divide plants, after flowering and every three years to keep the plants looking good. Pruning also improves the appearance of both young and old plants. Cut back the foliage halfway after the flowers fade. This encourages new green compact growth and you may even get a few more flowers.
